    Hello everyone!
    I have found this forum so helpful while trying to learn more about chickens! I have learned a lot and am trying to absorb as much as I can. I have 5 buff orpingtons and they are awesome! I also was given ten mystery birds (white). What is best way to determine what type they are? They are only about 6 weeks old, but they feel like I am picking up bricks. Much heftier then the BOs.... I am thinking they are meat birds. Anyone have a link to help identify them?
    Thanks,
    steven
